Eternal struggle between the halves and the have nots in kc and around the world.

Thank President Trump for the low gasoline prices. Remember during Hope and Change it was almost double what it is now. MAGA

You might be reading that economic sign wrong. Lower gas prices actually indicate less economic activity. Ask Venezuela how they feel about the economic impact of fuel prices falling.

6:16 so you’re saying that during Obama’s time in office when gas was routinely above $3:50 a gallon and prices for food and clothing went through the roof and the population was struggling to support their families that that was economic good times? Ya, you must’ve been too young for that, why don’t you ask your parents about that instead of making shit up. And while you’re at it, get your money back from the umkc school of fake economics.

I loved Barry’s answer to high gas prices, he said and I quote if you’re tired of paying $150 to $200 a month for gas then why don’t you go out and buy an electric car, they only cost about $500 a month......

@6:59-Please don't comment on things you have zero idea about. I'm sorry, not sorry, Obama still lives in your head rent-free, but it's obvious you're nothing more than a trumpkin, and we all know trumpkins and facts don't mix. The rest of us who live in reality understand what low gas prices really mean and how they have ZERO (you know what ZERO is right?....think of your IQ) to do with how well an economy is doing. Oh well, don't know why I'm explaining it to a trumpkin. Go back to Faux News and get told what to think again.

^^ Keep believing the liberal lies and see where that gets you.

Geesus, Trumpkins will trot out anything with out any sort of backing information. There's a lot of factors that go into gas prices that a POTUS really has no control over but please carry on with what you believe. It's pointless to argue facts with you clowns because you don't believe in facts.

Also, if you're out buying a fucking F-250 and bitching about gas prices, you're fucking stupid. If you buy a gas hog and don't think at some point during the ownership of said gas hog, you're going to clear $100 for fill the tank, then you're stupid. So, before you buy, ask yourself if you can stomach $100+ per fill up before buying the vehicle dummy.

The US became a net exporter of energy under Obama as domestic gas production rose during his administration.

Prices have actually gone up since Obama left office. but please don't let facts get in the way of your MAGA propaganda.

I believe the all-time high here was just over $4.00. In 2004. Under W, for those who are history-challenged.
